Demi Lovato posted a meme following 21 Savage's ICE arrest, and has since deactivated her Twitter, after receiving backlash for "laughing at" him.

Earlier in the day, news broke that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested the "Bank Account" rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, in Atlanta, with authorities claiming he's actually from the United Kingdom and has overstayed his welcome.

Grammy-nominated artist 21 Savage was facing deportation from the United States on Sunday after authorities discovered that he was in fact a UK citizen who had overstayed his visa by 13 years.

Twitter users were quick to call out the singer including fellow rapper, Offset, who seemed to "indirectly" tweet: "ALL THE MEMES AND S**T AINT FUNNY WHEN SOMEBODY GOING THROUGH SOME", the Migos rapper wrote.

On her Instagram stories, Lovato again clarified that she was laughing at the British memes and not 21 Savage's deportation, saying, "Sorry if I offended anyone".

'Wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported. The meme I posted/was talking about was him writing with a feather pen.

She shared snapshots on Instagram alongside a statement, telling followers it is "no excuse to laugh at someone's addiction let alone their OD".

And then finally she declared she was done with Twitter and promptly deleted her account: 'F*** Twitter.

According to the agency, 21 Savage is actually a British national and entered the country illegally in 2005, remaining in the US after his non-immigrant visa expired a year later. She also shared screenshots of comments people made about it, including trolling her over her recent overdose and habitual drug use. If the allegations prove to be true, it would be devastating for a community who sees the rapper as one of their own. Twitter users bombarded her with jokes about her addiction while others wished that she overdosed.

When The Shade Room posted about Wale calling out the singer, she wrote in the comments, "Wale just salty I never replied to his desperate tweets years ago". Literally no one. That's it.

Lovato later explained that she was in no way mocking 21 Savage's arrest. It doesn't go deeper than that.

Appearing disgusted, the Sorry, Not Sorry crooner took to her Instagram stories to reveal the savage abuse she was receiving. I don't know people when they down.
